‘Captain Marvel’ Co-Writer Comments On Writing Powerful Characters

Just earlier today we learned that Marvel had pushed Captain Marvel back a bit. While some might have seen this as a negative factor, it gives the team behind the film more time to work on things and make sure they deliver the film that they set out to. That date also allows the film to hit theaters on International Women’s Day. Not a bad release date for Marvel’s first female led superhero film. While speaking with Collider, co-writer Meg LeFauve spoke a little about the film and what the trick is to to writing a relatable powerful character.

We have not started yet. We just got the phone call to come over to Marvel. But for me personally, the wonderful thing about her and the challenge of her is going to be that she’s a female superhero. And that is awesome because she’s so powerful, and how hard is that going to be because she’s so powerful? We don’t want the Superman curse. “What’s her vulnerability?” is what we have to figure out.


There’s definitely some interesting comments in there and here’s hoping that the team behind the film is able to pull this one off right. At the moment there’s still no word whether we will have to wait until her solo film before we meet the character but we’ll have to wait and see when she does pop up. Let us know what you think about LeFauve’s comments below.

Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
